2017-2018 China Glycerol Market Annual Report

Annual Report Overview


China’s glycerol market rose in 2017 overall. The glycerol market advanced at the beginning of 2017, and declined slightly in April. Afterwards, the glycerol market fluctuated upwards again. The main reasons for the uptrend were as follows. The operating rates of the glycerol plants declined due to the thigh crude glycerol supply. As a result, refined glycerol producers’ intention of price rises aggravated. Besides, the crude glycerol supply was expected to be tight. These factors all supported the expectation of glycerol market rises. From the upstream crude glycerol side, the import dependence degree was key to the uptrend of China’s glycerol market. Besides, biodiesel plants ran without any profits because of the crude oil price of below $60/bbl. These factors led the crude glycerol output to decline. At the end of 2017, supported by the tight supply, the price of crude glycerol was above 50% higher than last year. From the supply side, some glycerol plants were shut down or lowered the operating rates, descending the market supply.

Will he supply of crude glycerol increase? Will the crude glycerol price keep running at highs? What will change in terms of the glycerol supply under the market background? Will new projects put into use later, and what’s the impact of them?

SCI has engaged in commodity markets research for 14 years with abundant data and benign information channels. As for the oleochemical industry, SCI has worked on researching this industry for 7 years so that we can master the periodic variation of the market somewhat.
